Biomarkers for Autoimmune Rheumatic and Skin Diseases
Purpose Disseminating extraordinary scientific advances to the widest community of experts within the discipline of Rheumatology.
Mission The mission of the Rheumatology: Current Research journal is to support research into the causes, treatment, and prevention of arthritis and musculoskeletal and skin diseases; the training of basic and clinical scientists to carry out this research; and the dissemination of information on research progress in these diseases. The Journal’s research portfolio includes five core mission areas: 1. Arthritis and Rheumatic Diseases 2. Skin Biology and Diseases 3. Bone Biology and Diseases 4. Muscle Biology and Diseases and 5. Musculoskeletal Biology and Diseases The goal is to provide better results on hypothesis-driven laboratory or clinical research.
Summary In this special issue, Biomarkers for Autoimmune Rheumatic and Skin Diseases, journal developed research plans aimed at characterizing effective molecular indicators of disease, called biomarkers, and distinguishing biological targets most likely to respond to new therapies.
Results These findings would conceptually advance treatment for autoimmune disorders and promote more studies, including clinical investigation, and ultimately lead to better outcomes patients.
